Cancer is ruled by the emotional moon, and is known for being one of the most sensitive zodiac signs. This moody, introverted, and nurturing water sign’s symbol and zodiac glyph is the introverted Crab. The crab is an animal that shows its hard shell and intimidating claws to the world, but is actually quite soft and vulnerable on the inside.
Because Cancers like to keep to themselves, they have a reputation for being reserved and sometimes standoffish. You’ll find that this is the case until you get to know them. Once you get on their good side, however, and they accept you into their close circle, get ready to be loved like you’ve never been loved before. Cancer’s capacity to nurture and protect their loved ones is legendary. You won’t forget the “wrapped up in a cozy blanket made of love” feeling that only a Cancer can deliver.
